All I can say is “I am”, all else is inference. But the inference has become a habit. Destroy all habits of thinking and sleeping. The sense “I am” is a manifestation of a deeper cause, which you may call self, God, Reality or by any other name. The “I am” is in the world but it is the key which can open the door out of the world.

The “I am” and the Absolute are not two. In the Absolute the “I amness” comes and then the experience takes place. Whatever is happening, from the Absolute standpoint, without the knowledge “I am”, is very profound, unlimited, and expansive.

ASSORTED QUOTES OF NISARGADATTA MAHARAJ #10

Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

Thus spake Nisargadatta!

To locate a thing you need space, to place an event you need time; but the timeless and spaceless defies handling. It makes everything perceivable, yet itself is beyond perception. The mind cannot know what is beyond the mind, but the mind is known by what is beyond it.

What is the most ingrained habit you have? It is to say “I am”. This is the root habit. Words and experiences are unworthy of you. This habit of experiencing will not go until you realize that all this is the domain of five elements, and the experiences in the five elements, are unreal. This “I amness” itself is unreal.

Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj Quotes

Decorative Line

Consciousness is the sense of knowingness “I am” without words, and it appeared unknowingly and unsolicited. Only in the realm of knowingness ‘I am” “the consciousness” can a world be, and so also an experience. Hold on to this knowingness “I am” and the fount of knowledge will well up within you, revealing the mystery of the Universe; of your body and psyche; of the play of the five elements, the three “gunas” and “prakriti-purusha”; and of everything else. In the process of this revelation, your individualistic personality confined to the body shall expand into the manifested universe, and it will be realized that you permeate and embrace the entire cosmos as your “body” only. This is known as the “Pure Superknowledge”  “Shuddhavijnana”.

Decorative Line

Once you subside into the consciousness, the factual state of Reality shall be revealed to you with the knowledge that will emanate out of you intuitively, like spring water. This will enable you to discern not what is real and unreal, but, most importantly, to realize what ‘I am’. And who could be that one? Surely not an individual who is trapped in the mind-shell, but that one is the knowledge ‘I am’ – the consciousness.

The capacity of consciousness is something astounding. I didn’t know I was, and then suddenly I knew ‘I am’. This ‘I amness’ is the power of ‘Maya’.

Decorative Line

To understand more clearly take the example of the dream world. You are in deep sleep and suddenly you feel ‘I am’ and that ‘I amness’ creates a dream world. Similarly this manifest world is created by that ‘I amness’. You will realize this later in the search for truth. The last progress will be for you to transcend this ‘I amness’ and get stabilized in the ultimate.
